Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta) (May include reviews from Early Reviewer Rewards Program)
Fans who enjoyed "Times Last Gift" and wonder what became of the main character should also check this out. He is mentioned in this first novel and even makes brief appearances in the second and third novels.
However, the character that really steals the show is the giant wrecking machine, Kwasin. If you like Conan, you'll love Kwasin.
This new edition includes a fact filled introduction from Christopher Paul Carey (co-author of The Song of Kwasin, the final portion of the Khokarasa Trilogy,as well as Exiles of Kho, a prequel to the Khokarsa series) which highlights the literary crossover connections present in the series. Not only that, but a new Afterword by Cary has been added (in addition to the fantastic addendums which were already present). The Afterword contains an index/glossary for characters, races and geography. Farmer was a first class world builder, so this section will come in very handy for reference.
